My son Andrés worked with me until recently, and my daughter Cristina, a culinary school graduate, is currently running things alongside me. Lucila, how has your Cuban heritage influenced your edible creations? The cake recipe was taught to me before any one else in Miami ran off with the recipe by the grand lady of pre-Castro Cuban cooking, Ana Dolores Gomez. I am also very interested in French and European pastries. Dr. Andres, what drove your decision to become a health professional? It all began with my interest in Biology, which then became focused on Human Biology and eventually, Medicine. You are actively involved in supporting various organizations and in giving back to the community. Which organizations are you particularly involved with? Andrés: We are both very connected with our Alma Maters: Belen Jesuit Preparatory School and the University of Miami. Lucila: I also belong to Les Dames D’Escoffier, an organization that has supported the Homestead area Farm Council for some time. As a business owner, I belong to Legatus, an international Catholic organization for men and women in business involved in Lucila and Andrés Jimenez charitable work.
